Available in many "DIY" store is a wonderful tool, which is called "Caulker."
What is a "Caulker"?
is essentially a flexible plastic-type blade, generally about 10 to 12 "in length and can be used for applying a filler the surface of a wall or ceiling, and also the elastic capability of being able to pen (Blend: Flatten) of . filling gently out onto the surface, making it ideal for spot on
a 'Caulker' is very similar to the "Texturing / Arte Xing legs' unless the business edge of the" Caulker & # 39; smooth and flat, not serrated, combs and the like, such as a "Texturing comb & # 39;. report
There are generally two types of plastic" Caulker. & # 39; One is an all-in-one plastic version, while the thicker grip molded onto the thinner flexible working lives. The rest consists of a wooden handle, and a separate, flexible and thinner plastic working edge is inserted into the wooden handle.

3: and if we continue to slip in the 'Caulker' to the wall, lay the material slowly close the 45% angle so that at the end of the stroke of the handle edge closer to the wall, which is the minor scratches and surface variations as you go.
This method is "on" should be a continuous uninterrupted.

production of the vital key. Please watch out for the rest of the article, which covers all kinds of different surfaces and how to prepare them, before the great or decorating.
There is a wide selection of fillings available in the market that can be used in our "Seal Technique" and has experimented with most of them.
I find that the best results are achieved when mixed with 40-50% run / end "type of gypsum plaster pink" white powdered filler-type inner surface clean with cold water.
This ultimately creates a very fine mixture which is ideal for the job.
Once you have created the filler, the consistency should be thick enough, you can not run or drip when the scraper scoop some up. And do not be so thick that you can not even spread out onto the surface.
Also make sure that all of these mixed clumps.
Again, it is essential to use clean water and clean all equipment. The reason is that once you have laid the surface of the filler, if there is a bit of mud mixture as you are smoothing the surface of the filler, it is noticed that a few minor scratches in your work.
There are many substances that are mixed with water tends to shy away once dried.
Thus, the second layer may be feasible area when dry. To do this, you need to define more mixed material over a wider first attempt and beyond the first layer completely covers.
But before we go on this second layer, read in connection with the preparation of the preliminary decorative interior surfaces, because we have just created a highly porous surface and the band's new material does not stick to just pass the dried stuff.
This is the mix of fillers that have created absolutely wonderful for grinding down; This may be required in that they further mix the filler in the wall.
Use fine sandpaper, and please take care when using sharp tools in use, always read the instructions on the packaging and building materials, use a dust mask and take care of the lungs.
